Evansville, IN – Glenn A. Lawson, 75, of Evansville, Indiana, passed away on Monday, September 12, 2022 at St. Vincent Hospital in Evansville. He was born on April 25, 1947 in Spencer, Indiana to the late Max and Isobel (Heaton) Lawson.
Playing piano since the age of 5, Glenn was a highly skilled and talented pianist. He would eventually work with his father tuning and rebuilding pianos, as well as continuing to excel as a trained musician.
Charismatic and full of personality, Glenn served as a minister for over 30 years. Casting no judgement, people of every walk of life came to hear his preaching in Florida, Georgia, Wisconsin and Indiana. With his fierce, bullish spirit, he did everything that he believed in with absolute conviction. However, he was also known for his fun and goofy sense of humor.
Glenn is remembered by his family for his strong will and his fiery spirit as well as his unconditional love for cats.
He is survived by his daughters, Cecilia Bunker (Tad) and Christiana Jones; his step-daughter, Becky Curry; his grandchildren, Allison Gesser, Wilbur Stalker, Emily Stalker, Ariel Hayden and Ricky Stone; his great-grandchild, Adeline Hayden and his step-grandchildren, Michael and Michelle Hart.
Glenn is preceded in death by his wife, Linda Lawson.
A celebration of Glenn’s life will be held at a later date.
Simple Cremation Evansville is entrusted with care.

I will always remember my time with Glenn as our minister at Plymouth congregational church. He was a phenomenal person and wonderful teacher and friend. I will miss him and miss Linda. Glad you are in heaven again with each other.
Valerie Sweeney says
I am a resident of Vincennes and knew Glenn and Linda well. In several performances, he accompanied me and I was always secure in that because he was an excellent accompanist. It was a privilege to know them both. Blessings on all.

Pastor Glenn was full of personality and enjoyed being around him. He was faithful in sharing the Lord’s message with whom he served or had contact.
I’m thankful to have been in his congregation.

Glenn married my husband and I in Lagrange, Georgia back in 2011. He also played the piano for everyone at the wedding, it was absolutely beautiful!
He was our preacher at the United Congregation Church in Lagrange. He shared from his heart and brought joy and laughter into our hearts.
During the most difficult time of my life, Pastor Glenn and Linda came running and never left my side.
They loved me unconditionally, until I could love myself again.
He always referred to me as his adopted daughter, as I had nobody but them and God.
Oh how I am grateful that God sent him , if only for a moment into my life..
I will miss him dearly…
May God Bless his girls..
Cecey Bunker says
He talked about you with such love. Wish I could meet my “adopted sister”!
